Three posts in one...

Well guys, its been a busy week :

I. Took the car out of storage Sunday and went for a ride in the country. I found this great road :



Well have to schedule another Chicago owners get together this spring !

II. My daughter, Callie Elizabeth, was born on Monday, February 9th at 2:00 am :



6 lbs, 11 oz and 19 inches long. Mom and baby are doing great !

III. Took the Boxster to work today. Man, I forgot how wonderful this car is ! For those of you that drive year round, you miss the joy of being reacquainted after a long, cold winter. It really makes my tedious daily commute such a joy...

Have a great weekend, everyone !

Nick

Congrats on the beautiful new addition.

Now...
Put your Box away immediately. Bad stuff is headed your way. Just took this pic out my front door. 6" since 9am, another 3" in the next several hrs. We had bare ground this morning.

Congrats to you and the family! She looks so peaceful in that pic.

Regarding the road/drive that you found, what is so special about it? (I don't see any real twisties in the image you posted). One reason I'm more interested than most is that I frequent Chicago every few weeks or so, and all I've seen are straight roads . Would be good to find some nice 'boxster' roads over there!

Congratulations Nick!!!

Time to go buy a t-shirt that says "I've been to jail and I'm not afraid to go back!" because if she grows up to look like her mom you are in trouble when she's old enough to date.

Once again, congratulations and I/we hope you and Charlotte and doing well!

Thanks, everyone !

husker - we were lucky, we only got two inches of snow last night

bigb - McGough Road is actually pretty twisty. It's nothing compared to California or Tennessee, but it's the best road I've found out here so far...

Griz - I just think it's so cool that we made her the night we met you for drinks

Randall - Momma's doing awesome. Thanks for asking ( and for your prayers )

Sammy - I am so glad she doesn't look like me Gimme a call bro, haven't talked to you in forever !

Nick

Agreed

Well done on building a person! She looks nice and normal -definitely not an ugly baby, so be proud.

Congrats Nick !!

I recently had to have a conversation with my daughter's boyfriend (she is 25).
I actually said, "This ain't no country song. I WILL kill you...." You'll know what I mean when you get there...
